I’ve Recently Decided

12 Sep

that I’m going to live until the age of 84.

Somewhere in my 50’s

I’ll obtain a PHD so people can call me

Dr. Bob.

I will visit Osaka, Japan

and attend a baseball game there.

Then maybe somewhere around 60

I might be ready for another kid.

Casual

12 Sep

Sleeping with someone you casually connect with

is almost as confusing as

sleeping with someone you don’t respect

(especially if you’re raw dogging).

Your body can trick your mind

into falling in love

or thinking that you did.

Balance Due (The Gut Check)

12 Sep

Woke up on the floor to my cell phone alarm

going off.

Folded up my sleeping bag

and found my carefully hung up slacks

and collared shirt.

Slowly started dressing in the dark.

I visualized my goals–both long and short term,

then walked down the stairs

and out into the still morning.

My grace period was over

and it was time to put in work.

Goodbye Enemy Airship

Hello adulthood.

Katie and the Mattress on the Floor

31 Aug

I. High afternoon passions

her skin complemented

the living room decor

of my studio apartment.

Sometimes tender.

Sometimes erotic.

But never too aggressive.

 

II. The lowest of frequencies

brought us back

late one night

for some herb

and some tunes

and a little bit of tongue.

My intentions were mild

at best, but things grew raucous

with one casual click of the mouse.

Therapist

30 Aug

She told me that perhaps

I should take a break from romance

and focus my energies on being an artist.

It took me a couple of missteps

before I finally took her advice.

A Little Pizzazz

13 May

I spend my down time daydreaming

of snagging tough rebounds

then immediately throwing full court outlet passes

that lead to fast break points.

I visualize touch passes

to baseline cutters for easy buckets.

No look bounce passes hit my teammates in stride–

right into the hand that’s closest to the basket.

Dump off passes thrown over my shoulder

into the pal of someone curling from

the paint to the rim

and over the top lobs to big men

skillfully sealing off their defender.

I guess you could say that I miss hoopin’.
